Baby weight conversion scale

Conversion scale
We live in a world of metric weights where product weights are listed in kilograms and grams, eg a 500gram block of butter.  However, as a result of previously using the Imperial scale, baby weights are often mentioned in pounds and ounces. Also, a lot of tables don't cater for how small a premature baby can be . . .     So, we've put together this handy weight conversion table of both for you.
